Message from the District Office:

Last school year, the Start/End Time Review Committee determined that more conversation was needed about changing school start and end times at the elementary and secondary levels. The ISD 199 School Board and Superintendent Dave Bernhardson have decided to reconvene the committee to review new information and move forward with a final recommendation by the fall of 2018 to conclude the conversation and determine its impact on the Inver Grove Heights Schools community.

The district plans to conduct a final survey and schedule community meetings to gather feedback from stakeholders to make a final decision for the 2019-2020 school year. In addition to updating the community via district publications, information will also be posted on the district’s Start Time Review webpage,
